MIAMI (AP) – The Miami Herald will be moving from its downtown Miami location to the former headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in nearby Doral.
The Herald (

The newspaper’s parent company _ McClatchy Co. _ sold the 13.9-acre Herald property to the Genting Group for $236 million last year. Genting has announced plans to build a $3.8 billion destination resort with a casino at the site. The newspaper will remain in the downtown location rent-free until 2013.
The U.S. Southern Command moved into a new facility in Doral in 2010.
